DB ignited the fight for the 6th round by running 4 consecutive wins based on strong defensive organization.
Wonju DB, acting coach Kim Joo-seong, won 89-73 in the 2022-2023 SKT Adot Professional Basketball regular league home game against Jeonju KCC held at Wonju Sports Complex on the 28th.
DB managed to rise in the rankings by winning 4 consecutive wins and surpassing Suwon KT to 7th place. It closely followed 6th place KCC by 0.5 games.
Acting coach Kim Joo-seong said, “The defense we prepared at the beginning of the game did not work, and we gave away a lot of goals to Heo Woong. So he ordered defense from the 3rd quarter, and the players did well, so the game seems to have worked out well,” he said overall.
DB allowed 32 points to Heo Woong, but completely blocked the other players and led the game to victory. Except for Heo Woong, Lagunaga (10 points) was the only player to score double digits.
Acting coach Kim Joo-seong said, “It seems that the existing offensive defense did not work well. Fortunately, those problems were exposed in the winning game. I think it’s an opportunity to practice in the future.”
DB, who started the 2nd quarter with a 23-16 lead, allowed KCC 8 points in a row in the middle of the 2nd quarter. In a situation where the atmosphere could have passed, Albano’s 3 points burst and brought the flow back, and after that, he succeeded in scoring consecutively and was able to finish the first half with a 46-41 lead.
In this way, DB has the power to bring the flow back to the opponent’s strong pursuit. It does not collapse easily, and does not allow easy pursuit. There was a stickiness I hadn’t seen before. Where does the power of this DB come from
? If you can’t defend, your offense won’t work either. Offense can be raised because there is some statistical average point. He explained that it is important to follow and succeed in defense.”
DB led the team to victory with a total of six players, including Ethan Albano (15 points, 4 assists) and Dwan Hernandez (12 points, 9 assists), scoring in double digits. Jeong Ho-young also supported the team by recording 9 points and 4 assists, performing well.
In addition, DB played an organic attack by recording 26 assists, 12 more than KCC, and showed a unique fast basketball on the court by raising 14 points in a fast break. He overpowered KCC by showing team-based offensive basketball, not an attack that relied on individual abilities.
Acting coach Kim Joo-seong said, “In the offensive part, we give Albano a pattern and give instructions. And Albano needs time to rest after one or two attacks, and I think other players have done well for those patterns.”
DB, who succeeded in 4 consecutive wins, has 3 consecutive away matches with top teams in the future. Changwon LG, Ulsan Hyundai Mobis, and Anyang KGC, which are currently ranked 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, are in a row. It is a three-game series that is more important than ever for DB, who is fighting a fierce battle for the semifinals. 메이저놀이터
Regarding this, Acting Supervisor Kim Joo-seong said, “The preparation period is short, and there are parts that do not fit. We have 3-4 days, so we will prepare to play a good game against top teams.
” It also makes no sense to divide (Kang) Sang-jae and (Kim) Jong-gyu to run for 20 minutes each. If you do that, both of you lose the sense of the game. We are looking for various ways so that the two players can coexist,” he said, and said that he was looking for a way for the national big men to coexist.
